Marcellus By Design Workshops By Penn State University Researchers + Hamer Center Coming to an Area Near you in June

Penn State researchers invite you to attend a Marcellus By Design Workshop to learn about the issues, people, and places involved as key components to implementing best management practices for landscape planning and resource development.  Any large-scale development has long-lasting economic, social, and ecological effects where it occurs. Marcellus Shale gas development has already occurred and will likely continue to be a driving force behind economic development in many Pennsylvania communities.

Workshop participants will be invited to logon to the MarcellusByDesign website to peruse a variety of means landscape architects and planners use to identify and weigh the many considerations and approaches of large scale landscape planning.  Through participation citizens will gain information to assist them in making informed decisions about their land, their livelihoods, and their futures.

Marcellus By Design is a Penn State University Department of Landscape Architecture studio initiative supported by a National Science Foundation grant to enhance awareness of the roles that landscape planning and design can play in the context of Marcellus Shale natural gas development in Pennsylvania.
